While I have to commend you on what you’ve done with the Duane Building,
I’ve got to inquire about your involvement/intentions with the old Gel-Pak building. The following picture was taken on November 18th, 2006.
The below photo was taken on November 10th, just a few days ago.
While it’s obvious that there are more windows broken, the scary thing is they’re broken FROM THE INSIDE. It’s no secret that access to the building is easy. I’ve seen photos of people’s adventures as they chronicled the break-in, and what the inside looks like.
But this view from the south side of the building is almost an invitation:
And while I’ve seen the back of the structure before, I don’t recall ALL of these windows being broken.
Someone was pretty thorough here:
And I don’t believe this graffiti got there by itself.
I remember how the Duane fire got started. Unless some action is taken soon, this property is liable to suffer the same devastation, especially with colder weather coming.
Just a friendly FYI….
Hat tip to my good friend for the heads-up on the window-writing!!
Editor’s Note: Just got done with this for Black Cloud. I’ll go back tomorrow to see if I can get more of the tree in the pic.
